THE Ba Province is pleased with the $1.5million budget for rehabilitation works allocated by government.
The funds have been used for rehabilitation projects within the province after the January and March floods this year.
Ba Provincial Council chairman Ratu Meli Saukuru said the council was pleased with the work done by government to rehabilitate villages and communities within the province.
"We had a meeting with the Commissioner Western (Commander Joeli Cawaki) and he gave an update on the work that has been done by government so far," said Ratu Meli.
"We are happy with what they've done and we are looking forward to seeing more of the work done to help our villages and settlements," he said.
"Many people living within our province were affected in the floods but we are glad that government is working towards improving their living standards," he said.
Ratu Meli said efforts to improve water facilities, schools and roads were welcomed by the provincial council.
"Water in the Yasawa Group is one of the problems that we usually face and we are thankful that efforts are being made to address this issue."
He said the rehabilitation process by government would continue until next year. "There is a lot to be done and that is one of the reasons that the work will go on to next year," Ratu Meli said.
